Spotlight on Midtown Manhattan
Midtown Manhattan is the country’s largest commercial, entertainment, and media center. The northern border of Midtown is easily delineated as 59th Street, however the southern border is a bit more ambiguous. The border is considered by some to be 34th Street, though others considered the area to extend to 23rd or even 14th Street. From East to West, Midtown spans the entire island of Manhattan, being bordered by the East and Hudson Rivers.
Midtown is such a large area of Manhattan, that it is often broken down into Midtown West and Midtown East. However, even within that, there are numerous neighborhoods and enclaves with their own unique atmosphere. Times Square is considered the central core of Midtown. Other notable areas include Hell’s Kitchen and Chelsea on the West Side, and Murray Hill and Gramercy Park on the East Side.
Midtown is packed with famous landmarks, such as the Empire State Building, Carnegie Hall, Bryant Park, the Waldorf-Astoria Hotel, the Chrysler Building, and St. Patrick’s Cathedral. There are endless ways to spend an afternoon, between the Museum of Modern Art, the New York Public Library, numerous Broadway theaters, and of course, endless shopping. 5th Avenue hosts flagship locations for stores such as Louis Vuitton, Tiffany & Co., Gucci, and Sak’s Fifth Avenue. The area is also home to the headquarters of the United Nations, Rockefeller Center, and three major U.S. television networks. Many countries, including Argentina, Germany, Ireland, Japan, and Morocco, have consulates in the area, as well.
The bustling population of Midtown consists of residents, commuters, students, and tourists. Two campuses of the City University of New York are located in Midtown, as well as the Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis High School, The Beekman School, and a number of private language and music centers –like the American Language Communication Center, and the New York Youth Symphony.
Real estate in the area consists of high-rise apartments, as well as condos and co-op’s. Residents have the world at their feet, from world class shopping, entertainment, and food, to renowned schools, centers of business, and transportation to take them easily across the city or out of state. Midtown is a central hub of Manhattan transportation, with Pennsylvania Station, Grand Central Station, and the Port Authority Bus Terminal all located there.
